Arutz Sheva: “Former U.S. President Barack Obama defied Republican opposition and quietly released $221 million to the Palestinian Authority (PA) in the final hours of his administration, officials told The Associated Press on Monday.
Republican members of Congress had been holding up the money to the PA, but a State Department official and several congressional aides said the outgoing administration formally notified Congress it would spend the money Friday morning, just before Donald Trump became president.”
Opinion: Mahmoud Abbas learned well from his former boss, Yasser Arafat, the father of modern day terrorism. Abbas knows that if he pretends to renounce terrorism the secular progressives will not only believe him but send him cash.
Abbas knows that anti-Semitism runs deep throughout the west and particularly among Christians who have embraced Replacement theology. A recent example was last Saturday.
Abbas received a warm welcome from Pope Francis while the two announced the opening of a Palestinian embassy at the Vatican. Catholics believe, as do several Protestant denominations, that God changed His mind on the Jew. That the blessings of the Abrahamic Covenant were transferred to the Church because of the crucifixion of Jesus.
Replacement theology dates back to early church fathers, Augustine and Chrysostom, and is so embedded in the theology that most Church members are completely unaware that it even exists.
That Abbas has the blood of thousands of innocent Israeli men, women, and children on his hands is overlooked because of the great lie that the land of Israel is Arab land. His most recent terror plan was/is the stabbing/car ramming intifada.
Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs reported in December 2016 that there had been 166 stabbings, 89 attempted stabbings, 109 shootings, 47 vehicular attacks, and one bus bombing targeted at Israelis during the recent uptick in violence beginning in September 2015.
And what did he get? $220,000,000 in Obamacash as a reward. The world loves its own, John 15:9.
